Bounce Rifle is a weapon in Saints Row IV.[3]

Fires compressed energy bolts that bounce from target to target. Fun at parties!
— Weapon Description[4]


The Bounce Rifle is a single shot weapon that does a moderate amount of damage to targets in comparison to other weapons in the rifle class, ricocheting around and damaging or killing multiple amounts of targets. The Bounce Rifle favors attacking multiple targets as opposed to attacking single targets, else the projectile cannot do its full damage potential. The gun uses Capacity Charge and therefore requires no ammunition, which removes any concerns of the gun running out of ammo. The Double Play ultimate upgrade turns the Bounce Rifle into a 2 round Burst-Fire weapon. This gives the Bounce Rifle additional Damage Per Second in exchange for increased Capacity Charge depletion.

The Xmas BB Gun is very similar in operation to the Bounce Rifle, as both fire projectiles that ricochet and hit many targets, and both are useless against vehicles unless the driver/pilot is exposed and can be shot.

The main problem with the Bounce Rifle is that the gun can run out of charge and be rendered useless until the weapon recharges enough, and a full charge takes substantial time. All the other weapons in its class, except the Disintegrator, have less down time from magazine changes or cooling down.


Damage, Overheat Level, Projectile Speed and Recharge Rate can all be upgraded 5 levels each, with a separate Double Play "ultimate upgrade".[5]


The Bounce Rifle is obtained during "Power Up CID" and is unlocked after completing the mission.

  • The internal name for the Bounce Rifle is "Glitch Gun", which is referred to in the leaked Achievements for Enter the Dominatrix.
    • The "Glitch Gun", Micronizer, and Freeze Ray were changed into Super Power Elements.
    • There is a disabled unlockable entry for the "Glitchmaster 3000" which features the icon of the Bounce Rifle.[9]
  • The Bounce Rifle could be inspired by the Superballer from Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon game, both weapons function the same but act differently, the Bounce Rifle shoots small balls that bounce of enemies dealing damage where as the Superballer shoots large balls leaving a rainbow trail and when it hits a enemy or object it makes the target bounce around dealing damage.
